Isaiah 32:9-14 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
The Women of Jerusalem
9 You women so complacent, rise up and hear my voice,
daughters so confident, give heed to my words.
10 In a little more than a year
your confidence will be shaken;
For the vintage will fail,
no fruit harvest will come in.
11 Tremble, you who are so complacent!
Shudder, you who are so confident!
Strip yourselves bare,
with only a loincloth for cover.
12 Beat your breasts
for the pleasant fields,
for the fruitful vine;
13 For the soil of my people,
overgrown with thorns and briers;
For all the joyful houses,
the exultant city.
14 The castle will be forsaken,
the noisy city deserted;
Citadel and tower will become wasteland forever,
the joy of wild donkeys, the pasture of flocks;
